I wanted to confirm that the PALT column in an exported SV data log is reporting pressure altitude, not the reading on the altimeter display the pilot sees (unless the altimeter is set to 29.92 inHg, of course...)

This is probably obvious, but I was unable to find documentation in Skyview Manuals, or an answered question from searching the Dynon Forum....

Just got an answer on this - it's indeed pressure altitude without any altimeter setting adjustment applied (ie, what you'd see indicated when you set the altimeter setting to 29.92).
